Bjork Breaks Silence After Canceling Tour Dates, Teases New Songs
After canceling the remaining dates of her European tour, Björk posted on Facebook Saturday (Aug. 8) to give fans some insight to the sudden cancelations.
The Icelandic singer has been touring in support of her latest album Vulnicura, but issued a statement on Aug. 5 explaining that the remainder of the tour -- which included three festival appearances -- would be canceled "due to a scheduling conflict beyond our control." Following her performance at Wilderness Festival in Oxfordshire, England, Friday (Aug. 7), Björk posted a thank you on Facebook that also included some elaboration for the canceled dates.
"Singing this album has been intense and the internal clock of it different to the other ones," she wrote. "It has sort of had to behave in its own little way . both the urgency of the leak and now this sudden closure for reasons beyond my control is characteristic of that . i hope through the years i have earned enough tourkarma points to get your support for this."
In her post, Björk also mentioned that she has already begun writing new songs, which seemingly plays into the reasoning for giving the rest of her tour the axe. She concluded, "the best most natural pathway to go is to let this beast flow its natural course and start anew."
